New toy Akorn W/Pron
 
The wife and I were at Home Depot yesterday and saw this..

I have been wanting a new grill for awhile and had been thinking about a Weber Performer but decided to get the Akorn instead. So... it came home with us.

We put it together last night and I seasoned it up today. This thing is amazing, I know I'm going to be very happy with it.

Very nice, Enjoy!

Nice pics. For the price it seems those things are hard to beat. The new ones with the table are cool.

Do you have numbers on the upper damper?

No numbers on the upper damper but there are numbers on the lower damper.

This latest akorn looks to be a real winner. :clap2:

I hope you get many years of great cooks out of it.

Enjoy

i havent used my akorn in quite a while, my UDS and performer see most of the action but i love my akorn. i only wish mine had a table like my performer. you simply cannot beat the akorn on bang for your buck!!!

Congrats on the new rig!

Trust me you will love it. I have had one for over a year and would not trade it. I have made a couple of modifications and added Grill Grates and it is a cooking machine.

Only problem is I haven't been able to find the cover...even online. I got the same one at HD almost a month ago...it is an efficient cooking machine.

Those look nice in the cart... My local HD doesn't have them yet. I wanted to see one but I guess I'll have to wait!

I love my akorn. I hope you enjoy yours and have many great cooks on it

By chance have you contacted Chargriller in regards to the cover. I know sometimes they are a little slow to bring some things to retail that they have on stock at the corporate office.

I'm planning on calling Char-Griller they have a part number for it #6555

Call around, we actually went to 2 other Home Depots first that did not have them.
